Girls Finally Got Great Again… And It Only Took Until the Season Finale

Posted by Aly Semigran | March 24, 2014 9:56 am

Who could have guessed we'd be here? Who could have guessed that Season 3, which got off to such an ugly and joyless and borderline unwatchable start (if anything ever trumps "Dead Inside" as the worst episode of Girls ever, I'll be legitimately surprised and horrified), would end on such a touching and effective...

Monday, March 24, 2014: How I Met Your Mother

Posted by Aly Semigran | March 24, 2014 6:00 am

Well, this is it: the penultimate episode of How I Met Your Mother. "The End of the Aisle" finds both Robin and Barney freaking out about their upcoming nuptials (surprise, surprise) while Barney's brother James (Wayne Brady) remains on hand for the big day.

It's been a rocky Season 3 for Girls, to say the least. For every horrific misfire ("Dead Inside"), there's been a quietly powerful triumph ("Flo"), and for every misguided story line (Ray and Marnie hooking up), there's been others that have paid off (Shoshanna finally getting fed up with Jessa). So it will be...

Parks and Recreation: This Is Not a Liam Neeson Taken Scenario

Posted by Angel Cohn | March 21, 2014 10:48 am

"Galentine's Day" (Part 2, technically) is the reason why I watch this show. I had a smile on my face throughout the entire episode and was pleased that they found a way to service every single character in one half hour, without sacrificing the funny. This one might end up in my top ten...

Parenthood: The Best and Worst Braverman Pairings of “The Offer”

Posted by Aly Semigran | March 21, 2014 9:27 am

Leave it to Sydney to ruin an episode otherwise dominated by the youngest of the Braverman generation. Sure, there was plenty of grown-up drama (this is Parenthood, after all) but "The Offer" was all about the kids, namely Victor and Max. But not Sydney, because Sydney is terrible. As Max devastatingly came to terms...

"A satisfying sequel is difficult to pull off," Abed warns at the outset of "Advanced Advanced Dungeons & Dragons," an on-the-nose bit of commentary from Dan Harmon cautioning viewers to not expect this follow-up to Season 2's "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons" to scale the same heights as that Top 10 (maybe even Top 5)-level...

Divergent: The Road Not Taken

Posted by Ethan Alter | March 20, 2014 3:06 pm

Even by the standards of most wanna-be franchise-starters, which focus almost as much on setting up sequels as they do on the movie at hand, Divergent contains an absurd amount of throat-clearing in place of actual story. Imagine the Capitol training sequence that constitutes roughly 30 minutes of The Hunger Games's screentime...
